A commander of the Popular Mobilization Forces, Ali al-Hamdani revealed on Saturday, details of the explosion that targeted the entrance to the holy city of Karbala yesterday, indicating that the terrorist responsible for the explosion carried out two previous "criminal" operations.
The PMF website quoted al-Hamdani as saying in a statement: "The terrorist got off and moved away from the vehicle 400 meters before reaching checkpoint 54 where the explosion occurred," noting that "the national security detachments hastened to pursue him and arrest him."
"The bomber was carrying an explosive device that can be detonated remotely and attached it to the vehicle coming from Baghdad and heading to Karbala," Hamdani said, adding that "the terrorist is from the area of Jurf al-Nasr and live in the al-Askary neighborhood in Musayyib and carried out two operations in the district before the latest explosion."
On Friday, an explosive device exploded inside a passenger bus (Kia) at the entrance to the city of Karbala, killing 12 people and wounding 5 others.
